Characterizing
Our DNA Exceptions

Increasing Undergraduate Access to Authentic Research Experiences
CODE (Characterizing Our DNA Exceptions) seeks to engage small groups of Alabama undergraduates or graduate students in authentic genomic research to sustain STEM interest and participation.

Working with HudsonAlpha researchers and educators in coordination with partner schools, students use computational analyses to determine the biological relevance of DNA changes known as variants from patient and agricultural samples.

Overview

Why was the CODE project developed by the HudsonAlpha Educational Outreach team? Learn about the background and mission of the CODE project. A full description of why we think bioinformatics research is valuable and crucial for the future can be found here.The requirements to become a participating school and our current pilot phase partners are included in this section.
